neck rash?

My daughter is 5 months old, she drools alot and doesn't have much of a neck, so moisture gets trapped in the rolls of her neck, and it's getting irritated. I've been putting powder there, last night I even rubbed a dab of Desitin. Any suggestions?

  • Keep it clean and dry. I use Caldasene powder. You can find it at a pharmacy and it works great for this! good luck.
